Russian top diplomat points to attempts to disrupt Syrian ceasefire- TASS

The Syrian top diplomat says Washington’s minor role in the Astana and Geneva processes indicates its unwillingness to assist in resolving the crisis

MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. Attempts to disrupt the ceasefire in Syria still continue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem on Thursday.

"Not everybody is happy about the progress that we ensured together with our Turkish and Iranian counterparts, as well as with the Syrian government and Kazakhstan, while the United States participated as an observer at the Astana talks," Lavrov said. "Attempts are being made to disrupt the ceasefire which was agreed on Astana and welcomed by the United Nations Security Council."
